All adult bench personnel MUST have a background check completed by USA Softball prior to the start of any USA Softball MA. sanctioned event. Adults will not be allowed on the field without this being completed. National Background checks can be done through RegisterUSASoftball.com. Each adult must complete his or her own national background check as it requires their electronic signature authorizing the background check to be completed. Massachusetts CORI checks will not be allowed as a substitute for the USA Softball background check. Anyone submitting a CORI result will be violating state and federal privacy laws and USA Softball MA. is not authorized to request Massachusetts CORI checks. Tournament directors will be asking for either the RegisterUSASoftball ID cards or a copy of the adult's profile page from RegisterUSASoftball.com to verify that the background check has been completed. Any questions, please contact Wayne Coe @ email@example.com
